Collecting and Interpreting Mold Samples
Taught by Dr. Joe Spurgeon, indoor air quality (IAQ) consultant and author, this in-depth course is designed for experienced IAQ professionals or persons who have completed the Indoor Environmentalist and/or Microbial Remediation Supervisor training. This course goes through much of the content in Dr. Spurgeon’s two books “The Collection and Interpretation of Indoor Mold Samples; A Comparison of Methods” and “Interpreting Mold Samples: A Workbook of Example Projects”.
The Indoor Environmentalist -Fundamentals Level training program is designed to assist with the development of professionals interested in providing indoor environmental quality (IEQ) investigations, reporting results and make recommendations for solutions for IEQ problems in residential buildings. The course is taught over a three-day period. This course provides the fundamental information necessary to perform many types of indoor environmental quality investigations including; moisture and microbial issues, allergens, toxic substances such as pesticides, and much more. There is no instruction on dealing with sound, lighting, ergonomics, electromagnetic fields and other less common IEQ related issues. This course does not provide certification or licensing for regulated areas such as asbestos and lead paint but does provide important information on these IEQ topics that all IEQ professionals should know. This course also helps prepare attendees for the ACAC CIE(Council – Certified Indoor Environmentalist) & CIEC(Council – Certified Indoor Environmental Consultant) exam.
The Indoor Environmentalist -Intermediate Level is the next step for those taking the Indoor Environmentalist -Fundamentals level or can serve as a stand-alone offering for those with several years of experience providing IEQ consulting services. It is also designed to serve as a standalone course for those owning or managing commercial buildings. During the intermediate level training, the primary focus will be on commercial buildings. Familiarity with The Essentials of Healthy Housing and the “7 principles” of healthy housing is helpful but not required. Intermediate attendees get a copy of the Fundamentals level course manual to ensure they have all the background materials used at that level. This course can be taken immediately following the Fundamentals Level training or any time afterwards. The course helps build on the foundation IEQ consultants have or those that have already taken the IEQ -Fundamentals Level have gained.
